1916 – The Irish Rebellion

(click on photo for trailer)

Easter Week in 1916, a small group of 2,000 Irish rebels
began an uprising against the British forces, consisting of 20,000 men. Although many knew they could not succeed
they felt the weight of destiny—
the moment to strike for independence had come.
After a week of fighting, many of the rebels were executed.

But The Easter Rising reverberated around the world
in freedom struggles from Ireland to India.

Narrated by Liam Neeson

Plus a short film, specially commissioned
by the Irish Film Board to commemorate 1916
